William Pascoe was born in Stonehouse near Plymouth, Devon on 8 August 1819, to William Pascoe a carver and gilder and his wife Elizabeth Hoskins. He began his career as an animal painter and specialised in sporting portraits of horses and prize animals. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1842 and also at the British Institute. He married Sarah Jane Rogers in Plymouth in 1862 and together the couple had 13 children.
Whilst he initially lived in Plymouth, Pascoe travelled around the country with his family to paint, living for a time in Newmarket in Suffolk where he earned his living taking commissions from horse owners. After spending time living in Cambridge during the early 1870ís he moved to Battersea, London.
He married again in 1879 after the death of his first wife and the family lived in Maidstone, Kent until October 1883 when they emigrated to the US. There he continued to paint and followed the racing circuits there. By 1890, the family had returned to England living in Brighton where Pasco died on 31 Dec 1892 at 8 Pentonville St, Brighton, Sussex.
Presentation: The painting is housed in a period Birds Eye Maple frame, which is in excellent condition.
